6 120mm Fans vs. 5 140mm Fans

Would I get better cooling on my Corsair Carbide Air 540 if I installed six 120mm fans or five 140mm fans? Thanks.

    The 140s have a CFM of 68. The 120s have a CFM of 62. Is there any other information you need to answer?
  3. 68*5 vs 62*6, so 6x120mm have higher air flow.

    but, larger fan usually are quieter.

    So they're close (only like 30)? Because I would save like $40 if I got the 140mms. Is that extra 30CFM worth $40?
  5. not even sure why you need so many.
